While far from their best, this silent Laurel and Hardy short is well worth a look
2 January 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Laurel and Hardy are collection agents sent to both serve Edgar Kennedy with a court order as well as repossess Kennedy's radio--since he apparently hadn't made any payments since 1921! However, when they try to give Kennedy the court papers, he's very slippery and doesn't give in very easily.

BACON GRABBERS is a decent Laurel and Hardy short, though far from the team's best. The reason it isn't top-notch isn't because it's a silent short, as some of their very best films (in particular, BIG BUSINESS) were silents. I think the problem, and it's a minor one, is that the film is a bit slow and doesn't pack in quite the same number of laughs as most of their other films. But, even a lesser Laurel and Hardy short is STILL a thing of beauty, so I do recommend you give it a watch--even if the ending is awfully contrived (after all, a steam roller doesn't just come along and do what this one does!).

Ironically, just five years later, Edgar Kennedy himself plays a man trying unsuccessfully to serve a court summons in the film WE'RE RICH AGAIN. I guess the tables are turned!
